Video overview of who we are: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ydQ8EcqzEQ
We are a Christian based, results-driven, after-school program that helps at-risk youth have abundant life. We are looking for people who love the Lord and love helping kids to join us in the after-school hours to make a difference for kids.
Students failing in school are recommended to us by principals in the four under-resourced neighborhoods where we have after-school programming. We need volunteers to help us walk alongside the student as we work to enrich their lives-- mind, body, and soul. Come be a part of the solution!
How can you help?
1. Help kids with their academic growth in reading and math. Encouraging them, giving them the individual attention they need and loving presence.
2. Bible study or chapel - teaching them about God and His Word.
3. Be a mentor and encouragement! Building relationships is key!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Volunteers choose one day a week (or more) .
Sample Programming Schedule:
3:30-4:30pm - Dinner/Chapel/Bible study/Play
4:30-6:00pm- enriching activities, computers, read aloud (most help needed here)
One day a week, one hour a day can truly make a difference! We are flexible with what time you come and need to leave!
